Chelsea defender Lewis Hall is set to start against Manchester City in the FA Cup. The English defender replaces Marc Cucurella, who was a little bit poor in the previous match against Manchester City in the Premier League.
Hall’s impressive performance caught the attention of the manager, who seems to be looking for his first win against Guardiola’s side.
It is Graham Potter’s turn to take revenge against Guardiola’s side and to relieve himself of the pressure swirling around the manager.
There are rumors that Chelsea is planning on replacing the manager.
Chelsea is currently facing injury issues, with ten players already out of the match. Potter is more likely to feed in new players against a strong Manchester City, and he hopes he qualifies for the next round of the FA Cup.
The manager also wants to see the best from Dennis Zakaria for the second time against Manchester City.
Carney Chukwuemeka was also impressive and is likely to start too.
